Swinging states.

The GOP may have all the money in the world, but the Dems have better music. From the NYT, the lineup for a loosely organized tour supporting Democratic candidates:

Representatives of the artists’ coalition said they planned about 34 shows in 28 cities on the tour, called Vote for Change. In Ohio on Oct. 2, for example, Mr. Springsteen, R.E.M., John Fogerty and Bright Eyes are to perform in Cleveland, while the Dave Matthews Band, Jurassic 5 and My Morning Jacket are set to play in Dayton. Meanwhile, Pearl Jam and Death Cab for Cutie are to take the stage in Toledo, and John Mellencamp and Kenneth Edmonds, known as Babyface, are to play in Cincinnati.

Oh, but don’t worry, the Republicans have a lineup, too: Mr. McKinnon added that Mr. Bush had drawn his own support from the entertainment world, citing stars like Lee Ann Womack, Kid Rock and Jessica Simpson.

Rock on.

    But why would anyone, possibly, doubt the political advice of Jessica Simpson and LeeAnn Womack (sp?)? They should both be considered modern political sages!

    (If you-know-who is re-elected, I may quite possibly be halfway to Canada on 11/3.)

    But haven’t you heard? According to Jessica Simpson’s mother, Jessica scored 160 on an IQ test. 😉

    OK, I know who Jessica Simpson is, (one can hardly miss her) but who is Lee Ann or LeeAnn Womack?

    Question #1 on Jessica’s IQ test:

    The sky is:

    a) blue

    b) green

    c) it’s blue, Jessica

    d) seriously, it’s blue

    e) c’mon Jessica, just pick blue!

    The GOP has all the money in the world? Last time I checked George Soros is voting and paying for John Kerry. I think you have your facts wrong.
